Ingredients

  • BURGER
  • ½ cup oats
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup chopped green onion
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 (16-ounce) package JENNIE-O® Lean Ground Turkey,
  • 6 (5-inches x 5-inches) pieces parchment paper or waxed paper
  • nonstick cooking spray
  • HOT CABBAGE KRAUT
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups thinly sliced onion
  • 4 slices JENNIE-O® Turkey Bacon, thinly sliced
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 3 cups finely shredded coleslaw mix
  • 2 tablespoons stout beer or broth
  • 6 slices Colby cheese
  • 6 whole wheat or sour dough buns, split and toasted
  • ¼ cup fat-free ranch dressing
  • 6 large green lettuce leaves

Directions

  1. In large bowl combine oats and Worcestershire sauce. Let stand 5 minutes or until oats are softened. Add onion, pepper and turkey. Mix until well combined. Divide mixture into 6 equal portions. Position 5-inch shamrock shaped cookie cutter on top of one piece parchment paper. Press one portion of meat inside shamrock and press out evenly to shape (3/8-inch thickness). Gently remove the cookie cutter releasing meat with your fingers from inside. Set aside. Repeat with remaining portions of meat.
  2. Spray large skillet with non-stick cooking spray. Place patties in skillet over medium heat. Cook 15 minutes, covered, turning 2 to 3 times and until 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer. Always cook to well-done.
  3. While patties are cooking, place olive oil, sliced onions, sliced bacon, salt and pepper in large skillet over medium heat. Cook 10 minutes or until onions are softened and bacon is browned. Add garlic, sugar, shredded cabbage & beer. Cook 6 to 8 minutes longer until cabbage is softened and liquid is evaporated. Reduce to low heat.
  4. Using a 3-inch shamrock cookie cutter, cut each cheese slice. Assemble burgers spreading ranch dressing on top of each bun. Place lettuce leaf on bottom bun and top with hot cabbage kraut, shamrock shaped patty and top with cutout shamrock cheese. Serve with bun top on plate to appreciate your fun design.
